Deaths In all camps for th- past
week numbered 77, as against 162 last
week. There Is a slight increase
shown in the number of cases of scar
let fever and meningitis, while meas
les and pneumonia are on the de
crease. The field sanitation division's re
port says that the health of the
troops in general is satisfactory and
